On the front page of this week's Kerryman, it's reported that a journalist for the Jerusalem Post, Sarah Honig, visited Coláiste na Sceilige, Caherciveen and was greeted by students carrying "Free Palestine" banners. On asking them "from whom Palestine was to be freed", they replied "The Jews" and that "Jews were evil as they crucified Our Lord". Needless to say, the principal vehemently denies all allegations, mentioning a Trócaire project concerning the Middle East, and the story rings false for a number of reasons. Firstly, teenagers would know sufficiently about current affairs to distinguish Israel from "The Jews", and secondly, any prejudicial remark in the course of class discussions would be instantly reprimanded by teachers, following CSPE guidelines, not to mention that Vatican Two absolved Jews for any blame for Christ's death, so it seems unlikely to arise in a 21st century environment. The original article can be read in full on the Jerusalem Post website.
